HELP!! Why Can't I use Blackberry App Store on my Wi-Fi Curve?

Hi everyone, I am sure this will sound like a dumb question but perhaps someone can help me -

I have a BB Curve 8830 through T-Mobile, the phone runs Wi-Fi but I cannot use the App Store. 

Yes, I appreciate that the idea, it appears is that RIM wants me to have full internet but with Wi-Fi I don't need it. 

I use the Wi-Fi all the time, for free, but can't use the store. 


Did I do something wrong in trying to get the desktop software, or is it my mobile plan?

I tried downloading the software when the site went live but was told over and over that my phone could not run the stuff I needed for the App Store. 




Any help out there?

Do you HAVE to have an internet plan to use this store?

The App World requires a data plan that includes browsing (ie Wi-fi is not enough).

I do not know if using App World through Wi-Fi will be possible one day.
